Last Valley finally on CD

Sunday, 24 June 2007 14:28

(info from Intrada website)

The Last Valley - CDLabel: Intrada Special Collection Volume 46
Dates: 1970
Tracks: 15
Time = 37:29

World premiere CD release of actual John Barry soundtrack for James Clavell epic set in 1637 Germany during Thirty Years' War, starring Omar Sharif, Michael Caine.

John Barry anchors with not one but two distinct ideas: First heard is propulsive, dynamic theme for brass, large chorus. Second is rich, sweeping valley theme for strings, woodwinds. Adding further contrast are dark ideas for plague sequences, rhythmic action cues for battle scenes.

CD offers masterful original 1970 Dunhill LP presentation from original master tapes stored in UMG vaults. Companion to same composer's THE LION IN WINTER balances intense excitement with rich serenity.

John Barry conducts.
